80-85 days. This heirloom from the Ukraine was collected in 1993 by Seed Savers Exchange. Very popular on Island of Krim in the Black Sea. Melons ripen to a yellowish-gold and the white flesh has a very high sugar content, a favorite among heirloom gardeners and growers alike. Ripens early, even in Russia.

Review:

Grew these in large pots in Western Washingon last year. All of the seeds I planted sprouted. This area is known for it's rain but the last few summers have been *very* dry. The melons grew well but due to limited space (because they were in pots) and inconsistent watering, the melons only grew to about baseball size. I think they are supposed to be bigger. Still, despite the size, they were freaking delicious - like a sweeter, crisper honeydew - and they smelled amazing. Also, they continued to grow and try to produce melons until mid fall, so if you take proper care of them, you might get a very good harvest. I intend to take better care of them this year and I'm looking forward to seeing the results. Highly, highly recommended!

Review:

Last year was a terrible melon year for us due to the weather but the Collective Farm Woman thrived and produced loads of wonderful melons. This is the only melon we like well enough to save the seed and we grow many varieties.

Review:

I was a bit hesitant to purchase the seeds - the description in the catalog wasn't as exciting and adoring as other melons. So glad I purchased this one though - the best melon I have ever grown. I'm growing 5 types of melons this year and so far, this is the best (have yet to pick 3 species so can't say that is my final answer). Sweet and crispy - I only planted 1 hill with these (2 plants) and got 4 melons. So next year I'm definitely planting more. All of my melons were a bit late this year, but this one was the first that I picked. Definitely recommend.

Review:

I'm giving this four stars because in more melon friendly weather locations, there might be better options. However, where I live, it's usually too cool with too short a season to grow melons, and this was my first melon success. I've read on blogs of them ripening and slipping off the vine - perhaps this happens in hotter climates. Mine started bursting open before they were ripe, so I began picking them when they lightened and got white striping, or any yellow striping. Then I let them ripen in a cool dark place until they finished turning color. The flavor is different in areas which aren't yellow but both flavors are good.
